I made sure my kids got the cp vac because I don't want them to go through what I have
ugh, yesI can sympathize. I had CP twice, shingles twice. I can't imagine having it every year.

I delay vaxing and I waited quite a while but ultimately I did do the vaxine. I would never purposley expose my children to it. Just because severe cases are rare doesn't make me want to let them get it.
